Care & Maintenance

Leather Care

When it comes to caring for leather furniture, there are several things to consider. Keep in mind that leather is a natural product, therefore, expect a certain amount of stretching in the pieces that are most often used as well as variations in shade, texture and even markings. Here are other ways to keep leather furniture looking fresh and new for the long term:

  • Dust and vacuum regularly
  • Flip, rotate and fluff cushions on a regular basis to ensure even wear and help them last longer.
  • Keep out of direct sunlight to prevent the fabric from fading and cracking.
  • Clean spills immediately by blotting with a clean, dry cloth and then allowing to dry naturally.
  • Every 6 to 12 months, clean upholstered furniture with a leather conditioner. This enhances and protects the leather. Do not use regular cleaning solvents such as detergent, ammonia, varnish, oils, furniture polish and other abrasive cleaners on leather furniture.

Fabric Care

  • Dust and vacuum regularly
  • In addition to fluffing, there are several ways to ensure the even wear and longevity of your cushions. Flipping and rotating them regularly will do the trick.
  • Keep upholstered furniture looking newer by protecting them from direct sunlight. Fabrics, particularly dark colours and cotton material, fade from direct sun exposure.

Follow these cleaning codes to clean soiled areas.

Wood Care

  • Use a clean, lint-free cloth to dust surfaces.
  • For a deeper clean, a mild, foamy cleaning solution is best. Use a clean, damp cloth to rinse and finish immediately with a dry, lint-free cloth.
  • Sunlight dries out and bleaches the colour of wood. Wooden furniture lasts longer and looks better when kept out of the direct rays of the sun.
  • Maintain your home’s proper temperature as extreme moisture and dry air can cause wood to crack and warp.
  • Coasters, tablecloths, placemats and other protective items are great for preventing scratches, nicks and marks to tabletops and other furniture.
